Happy 4th Card

July 4th is my birthday, so I decided to send my mom a thank you card. I have one of the best mom's in the whole world and I just wanted her to know that I appreciate her. This is the first time that I made a card like this and it was a lot of fun. I started with a square and then added circles on each side, they met in the middle to make half circles on each side of the square. So when I folded up the circles I was able to make a belly band to go around the card to keep it closed. It really gives it a neat look. It would be a great card to hand out for showers or birthday invitations, putting the information on the inside of the card and adding a larger design on the front to match the birthday theme or a monogram for something more formal. Below is a list of the supplies I used and where I got them from encase you are interested.
